Pagani Huayra is also in the new Transformers movie. How did the car ended up in that movie?

Actually they have been asking for it for 4 years now. But we are a small company, for example this year we produced only 40 Paganis, but other years we have produced only 15-18 Paganis only. And for a small company its expensive to give away one car for a month, it doesn’t make sense to us. But in the end  I did it and the villain is driving the car in the movie. The movie comes out in the end of June.

How many Huayras are you producing? And how much does it cost?

The Huayra, which means “God of Wind” is powered by a Mercedes AMG twin-turbo 6.0L V12. It produces 720 hp with a top speed of 231 mph and a 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds. We are making only 100. And it costs 1.24 million euros plus tax. But it takes only 8-9 km per litre gasoline, since its made of carbon and it is very aerodynamic. It weighs only 1.300 kilos.

What do you think about the Marbella Luxury Weekend?

I really like the concept. I had a Pagani here two years ago, but I couldn’t come myself and last year I didn’t participate. But because of the crisis, you have to be positive and I think this is great demonstration of thinking positive and a show that if you have dream you can do anything. Just follow your dreams.

What other passions does he have?

I like designing, I am also making clothes now. I live a relatively simple life with my family. And I also love cycling for example.

What car do you drive every day?

I have a Pagani of course and I also drive a Porsche.

What are you working on now?

I cannot say, since it’s a secret. I am working always on something new.
